Our dear friend, Robert Gradous, recently passed on July 6th of 2020.
If you knew Robert, you knew he was one of a kind. His wit and his attitude were unmatched. He was certainly a mentor to us and left an everlasting impression on anyone who had the pleasure of crossing his path. Robert’s passing was very unexpected, so we’re trying to help soften the financial impact on his family and employees.
We ask that you donate what you can. It will be greatly appreciated and used to help cover expenses for his family and his business.
There has been some confusion pertaining to this fundraiser. To clarify we can't post a gun related fundraiser on social media or gunfundme. We are posting everything here. Please read the instructions below to buy a ticket/donate.
For every $25 donated to the fundraiser that $25 will count as an entry to win an APA Executive Rifle.
NO LIMIT. DO NOT DONATE ANONYMOUSLY.
Please click on the Raffle/Donate button to enter. Please fill out your name and contact info so we know who to call August 17th. We will do the drawing live on APA's Facebook page at 5 PM east coast time.

Thank you so much and God bless you.
